From The Assistant to the Pastor
The staff was involved in our semi-annual staff planning retreat for three days last week. It was a great time of working, eating, planning, eating, fellowship, and eating. Seriously, we did get some things accomplished regarding calendared events for the weeks and months that lie before us. I am grateful to the men and women who make up our staff. They are all dedicated and well-qualified to lead the various age groups in our church. Keep us in your prayers.
Please prayerfully consider the people you would like to nominate to serve on the Pastor Search Committee. The ballots need to be in the Church Office by 5 p.m. this Friday, May 17. The Transition Committee will tabulate the ballots and list the seven nominees who received the highest number of votes cast making up a balanced representation of church membership and who have agreed to serve on the Pastor Search Committee. This list of seven nominees will be presented to the church for approval at a Special Called Business Meeting in both morning worship services on Sunday, May 26.
This Sunday, May 19, is time for our annual Baccalaureate Service to honor our high school graduates. We will have a Combined Worship Service at 11 a.m. this Sunday in the Sanctuary. Then on Sunday afternoon, we will enjoy our annual Church-wide Picnic at Lincoln Parish Park. This event will begin at 4 p.m. We need folks to bring home-made ice cream and cookies to the picnic! Don’t forget your lawn chairs!
Senior Adults, don’t forget our monthly luncheon on Tuesday, May 21. We will meet at 11:45 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. We will be giving a report on our recent trip to Greece. Invite someone to join us for this luncheon and fellowship.
